The brain is the body’s control center. It controls our every instinct, thought, action, and feeling. Billions of cells called neurons connect with each other to form neural pathways. These neural pathways dictate how we behave and respond to life. Learning, the brain’s superpower, involves the changing and rerouting of neural pathways, and the forming of new neural pathways that allow us to change our minds, our habitual behaviors and our lives. The brain's ability to change is referred to as neuroplasticity. The most effective and long-lasting change often comes from deliberate, intentional and repeated thought and action. Such thinking, if done persistently, can re-wire the brain. The brain is infinitely capable of change and growth, making it possible to not only change habits, thoughts and feelings, but also overcome addiction, injury, pain and illness through the learning process.
